HEIDI WOOD: OFF THE MAP
SAT 22 SEP – TUE 6 NOV 2018
Paris-based Australian artist Heidi Wood’s large-scale immersive wall installation explores the artist's ongoing curiosity about tourism and the unpopularity of tourist zones particularly within the ex-Soviet bloc. Creating her own promotional environment utilising a repertoire of commercial pictograms, mementos and symbols, Wood deliberately questions the very position of culture, the messages it can provide and the people it aims to target.
Heidi Wood gained a Bachelor of Arts in printmaking at Victoria College, Prahran, Melbourne and went on to study at Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts, Paris, DNSAP, atelier Claude Viallat. She lives in Paris and works in Montreuil.
